Read full description of the books:
Troubles is the riveting story of Major Brendan Archer, who travels to Ireland to meet his fiancée, Angela, in 1919. They have met only once before, a few years earlier in Brighton, and have conducted a long-distance relationship ever since. Within a few days of his arrival in Kilnalough, however, Angela dies of Leukaemia. But the old, dilapidated hotel her father owns — plus a local woman, Sarah — cast a certain spell over Major Archer. He decides to stay on at The Majestic Hotel, surrounded by old ladies, various animals, and the eccentric and fervently Protestant owner of the hotel, Edward Spencer. Meanwhile, another Ireland is rising up outside — "troubles" of both the political and social kind are about to rear their heads.

Read information about the authorJames Gordon Farrell, known as J.G. Farrell, was a Liverpool-born novelist of Irish descent. Farrell gained prominence for his historical fiction, most notably his Empire Trilogy (Troubles, The Siege of Krishnapur and The Singapore Grip), dealing with the political and human consequences of British colonial rule. The Siege of Krishnapur won the 1973 Booker Prize. On 19 May 2010 it was announced that Troubles had won the Lost Man Booker Prize, which was a prize created to recognize works published in 1970 (a group that had not previously been open for consideration due to a change in the eligibility rules at the time).
Farrell's career was cut short when he was drowned off the coast of Ireland at the age of 44.
